Aerosoles Review

"Slip into a pair of Aerosoles and watch what happens. There is more spring in your step, more color in your life, simply stated more comfort. With more than 20 years of experience creating shoes we are passionate about our product and our core values remain the same…comfort, style, quality and value." - Aerosoles

Wow! When I contacted Aerosoles about doing a Blog review on their shoes, I wasn't quite expecting how much more I'd fall in love with their company and products! From the beginning email to looking into the company for background info, I was pleasantly surprised with how easily everything flowed. Their website is easy to navigate and understand, and there is a ton of interesting info on how shoes become 'Aerosoles'. I was impressed to say the least.

For my review I chose the Bentwood in Black Patent, these normally retail for $69. I wanted to try a trendy dress shoe that would be versatile enough for day and evening wear AND be comfortable! I don't know about you but I have the hardest time finding a comfortable pair of dressy shoes! Usually there isn't enough arch or my toes get squeezed so tightly that by the end of the day my feet hurt so badly I have to take an Ibprofin!

Once I received them - which was super quick!! - I had to try them on with everything! I tried them on with jeans, dress pants and a skirt. I LOVE the way they looked with all of it! The whole time my soon to be 13 year old was begging to try them on too, so we held a little fashion show with them!

After the first day admiring all the sweet detail work and new shoe smell - lol! I decided to 'break them in' by wearing them around the house while doing housework. Ten minutes into tidying up and vacuuming I realized that I had forgotten I was wearing them! There was no need to even break them in!

Now it was time for the ultimate test... wear them out to a function. Even though the test run with them went better than expected, I was nervous. So me and the family took a trip to the mall. We were there, walking around the stores, for a good 3 hours or so. By the time we left the only thing that hurt was my pocketbook! After that, I HAD to go out dancing!! Would they hold up to shaking my groove thing? Yep, they did! They passed all the tests I gave them!!

Navigating through the Aerosoles website I found some really cool information here
all about what makes Aerosoles so great! Here are some highlights from that page that I thought were interesting.

The soles are flexible enough to twist and fold with the natural movement of your foot. "As you step, the front of your foot bends, so we create shoes that bend with you and offer ultimate flexibility in the toe. By stitching the upper – not gluing it – to a soft flexible insole we eliminate stiff, hard boards that other companies use. Then, we add a flexible rubber sole" (for better slip resistance!) "with our unique diamond pattern. You will feel the difference in every step." I LOVE this feature! Usually when I walk, especially with new shoes, my toe gets 'pinched'. With these I didn't have a problem at all!

There are cushy comfort beds of foam and cotton inside! "Cushioned insoles; comfort foam footbeds, and our sumptuous padded insoles soothe and pamper your feet." It was heaven wearing these shoes! They had a super soft inside that made me feel almost like I was wearing slippers.

Aerosoles employs a technology, unique to their company, in which their custom shoe design "distributes your body weight toward your heel, and away from the ball of your foot. The result, superior comfort in both high heels and wedges so you look and feel great."

Aerosoles design team is committed to innovation in footwear and that is obvious by the look and wearability of these shoes! Their mission is to be the #1 product-driven footwear company in the world and they have more than 20 years experience creating comfortable, decently priced, wearable shoes. Not only can you purchase their shoes online but also in over 100 Aerosoles stores and outlets all across the world - with more opening this year! To find a store near you check here.

The shoes that I chose were from Aerosoles new Spring Line-up. I had so much trouble deciding what I wanted to try; there are so many different fun styles and colors to choose from! Next pair of Aerosoles I want is a pair of their sneakers - I started working out more recently to get into shape for the summer and I really need a comfortable pair for the gym!

So in conclusion, here are all the reasons why I LOVE my new shoes, and why you should try out a pair yourself!!!!

*They are ultra comfortable! After a night out, my feet are usually killing me! With these on, I was able to dance, walk around and have fun all night as my feet didn’t hurt at all. If fact I forgot I was wearing high heels!
*Great with jeans, dress pants, skirts/dresses.
*Both for office and night life wear.
*I received a ton of compliments on them.
*My daughter wants to steal them!
*The design on these is exquisite.
*I love how soft the inside felt against my skin.
*My feet did not get sweaty.
*The little peek a boo in the toe is so sweet.
*Even the wrapping and box they came in were pretty.
*I have a wide foot and usually have trouble finding the right size, but I used the sizing guide on the website (super easy!)and these fit perfectly.
*I didn’t even have to ‘break them in’!
